The last time Elliott fell in love, his fiancé cheated on him. Now fresh out of rehab, Elliott’s confidence lags behind his libido—not that that stops him from lusting after the sexy carpenter working on his kitchen—from a distance. He won’t risk his sobriety on another potential broken heart.
As half of an experienced home renovation duo, Augustus expects this job will be easy. Until he sees the house’s tenant, a man he never thought he’d meet—his ex’s other man. Augustus knows he should say something about their secret, shared past, but he’s tongue-tied by their intense, unwanted attraction.
Despite attempts to keep things professional, the two men give in to temptation and forge a genuine connection—and his developing feelings for Elliott leave Augustus in an impossible situation. If he stays, his secret will always hang over the relationship. But telling the truth might send Elliott spiraling to a new rock bottom and cost Augustus the only man he’s ever really loved.
I’m not one to usually reread a book, but after finishing this I realized that I can, and probably will be, one to reread a whole series. I got into the RESTORATION series by chance, and it has been a rough ride, an extremely emotional ride, but definitely a worthy one. This final book in the series may mark an ending of sorts, but I feel like this won’t be the last I’ll be hearing from these guys. Just like its predecessors, this one took me on an emotional roller coaster that ended up being a worthy experience.
For those who are familiar with the storyline-and I strongly suggest you read these books in order if you’re considering the series- it was obvious that this was going to be a difficult journey for Elliott and Auggie. Having unknowingly shared a man, they had a chance to finally put things to rest and move on with each other, and theirs was a beautiful story.
